Hundreds of chickens have been found dumped in the Lincolnshire Wolds over the last four weeks.

Following recent fly tips of chicken carcasses, further dead chickens were found between Mavis Enderby and Raithby over the weekend of August 3 and 4.

On July 11 and 12, East Lindsey District Council were made aware of over 20 bin bags of chicken carcasses dumped in 2 locations, Tut Hole at Spilsby and others near Swaby. Then just days later, chicken parts were located at Holton Holegate on arable farm land.

The Council’s Enforcement Team are investigating and are working closely with other agencies.

If anyone has any information that will help with the investigations, they are being asked to contact the Enforcement Team on 01507 601111 or email environmental.crime@e-lindsey.gov.uk
